#BookReview: Fractured Tide by @lesliekarenlutz

Synopsis: Lost meets Stranger Things in this eerie, immersive YA thriller, thrusting seventeen-year-old Sia into a reality where the waters in front of her and the jungle behind her are as dangerous as the survivors alongside her. 

Sia practically grew up in the water scuba diving, and wreck dives are run of the mill. Take the tourists out. Explore the reef. Uncover the secrets locked in the sunken craft. But this time ... the dive goes terribly wrong.

Attacked by a mysterious creature, Sia's boat is sunk, her customers are killed, and she washes up on a deserted island with no sign of rescue in sight. Waiting in the water is a seemingly unstoppable monster that is still hungry. In the jungle just off the beach are dangers best left untested. When Sia reunites with a handful of survivors, she sees it as the first sign of light.

Sia is wrong.

Between the gulf of deadly seawater in front of her and suffocating depth of the jungle behind her, even the island isn't what it seems.

Haunted by her own mistakes and an inescapable dread, Sia's best hope for finding answers may rest in the center of the island, at the bottom of a flooded sinkhole that only she has the skills to navigate. But even if the creature lurking in the depths doesn't swallow her and the other survivors, the secrets of their fractured reality on the island might.

My Review: I know one thing after reading this book.  My love/hate relationship with the ocean has gotten worse.  I have a thing about being in water where I can't see the bottom so I tend to shy away from the ocean and after this books story ya I don't think I will be going in the ocean anytime soon. And as for scuba diving ya thats a full on NOPE!! 

This book gripped me from the very first page.  I thought it was going to be one that I wasn't going to enjoy but within the first chapter it had me flipping pages faster and faster and I just couldn't put it down.  The romance in this one worked out very well and the science fiction aspects of the story blended seamlessly with the story. It was creepy, scary, and I so need to it on the big screen.  

If you are looking for a book to scare the pants off of you,  or want something else to scare you from the deeps of the ocean than this is the book for you.  The characters are all soundly done and the pacing is incredible.  I couldn't put it down!!
